The Umgeni Valley Nature Reserve offers a tapestry of experiences to ignite your spirit of adventure.

According to SA venues, visitors are able to immerse themselves in the diverse landscape, with the greater part of the reserve unfolding in a stunning gorge beneath the falls.

Nature enthusiasts can go on self-guided walks where they will encounter giraffes, zebras, and various antelopes.

Taking to TikTok, Outdoor Adventure Photography shared a short clip of the Cascade Falls and Shelter Falls. The clip displayed a fun waterfall with a Bumslide ending. 

A comment response under the video by the poster revealed that it is about a 20 to 25 minute walk from the reception.
